Tesco giving free extended guarantee with electricals!

38
Found 21st Apr 2014
From 9am today up until the 15th of June, Tesco & SquareTrade are giving 5 year free warranty on tv's, 3 years on tablets, 2 years on laptops and 2 years on games consoles.
The warranty is mechanical & electrical breakdown.
SquareTrade have also taken 33% off the cost of the accidental add on for complete piece of mind! Games console accidental add on not reduced.

You may read this and think oh JL have always done this so why is this special. Well coup this with 2p off a litre every £50 you spend and club card points it makes this a huge deal!

As I said offer ends 15th June so plenty of time. No registration of warranty required, just keep receipt to claim.

How do I know? Good source remember starts when Tesco open today so please don't vote cold because it has not started yet, I'm just giving you all a heads up

I work for a major supermarket but I don't bother posting deals from my place. In all honesty, as a part time employee you don't care less how the company performs, espically with the large supermarkets. The job security is always going to be there.

I just ordered a TV from them yesterday, due to be delivered on Tuesday. Does the start of the offer cover when the TV was ordered or delivered? If it's the former what are the chances of them giving me the 5 year warranty if I phone up and ask?

okay what about online ????

how is this a deal?

Or use your statutory rights which are also free

goofus

Call them. If they don't play ball, smile at the delivery driver and tell him its been cancelled. Sign nothing and you will have an auto refund within 7 to 14 days

Thanks for the share

great deal.

Free? Up until the point you perhaps need to pay for that engineers report to support your claim. All that stationery and postage adds up too. Then there's the countless hours of your own time. Ultimately you might need your day in court and that ain't cheap either. There is a big gap between the fallacy spread by that idiot who runs MSE and the likes of Watchdog who talk a big game just like anyone would with the might of the BBC behind them vs what company x or y's entire department of lawyers who can resight SoGA backwards in thirteen different languages will tell you to do when you come claiming your four year old TV is their problem because your copypasta letter says so.

I'd rather trust JL rather than some temporary offer.

It's a deal because Tesco have never done this and if you feel the need to post JL warranty you can go ahead - I may just give it some heat to make you happy.

ST aren't like that, trust me, if you read their website you will get a better look, on amazon from 10500 reviews they are at 97%

1. That is not relevant at all.
2. You're wrong. The DSRs give you seven working days to return an item starting from the day after delivery.

You make it sound that X-years guarantee means they will repair/replace with a smile. Pretty much the same issues you listed above apply - loads of terms and conditions and they may just give you £100 for your £2k TV as it is "not economical to repair".

You've got to fight for you rights - whatever you paid for when things wrong.

If your product can't be repaired, ST will give you a model of the same spec or your full money back, all with a 5 day service guarantee

I mentioned nothing about Sqaure trade or extended warranties at all but seeing as you asked. Yes, that's exactly what they do by providing a clearly defined contract that can be enforced through standard legal means. You should of course read the terms of that contract before accepting, or in the case of this specific deal put any faith in it, I agree.

SoGA provides no clear definition (so not much of a bonefide contract) for (or between) consumers, retailers and manufacturers. It is just something 'reasonable' people, apply to 'reasonable' situations when it is 'reasonable' for them to do so. That was the point of my post! It just seems to have become a meme these days spread by people with just enough knowledge to be dangerous.

I know, but as the topic is about (free) extended guarantees (and SOGA) would it not be reasonable to assume that's the context?

I take your point that SOGA relies too much on the subjective definition of "reasonable", but I would suggest you'll find most guarantees include plenty of disclaimers for "reasonable" factors like wear-and-tear/equivalent-current-spec/obsolesce/depreciation/other to allow plenty of "wiggle room"; in effect there is no "clearly defined contract" at all to enforce...

I find SOGA is "more reasonable" than the 1-2 years warranty regardless of type of product and life expectancy that is provided by default. It would be good if it were to include the minimum warranty for each type of product - instead of relying on precedents - but I expect that publishing terms for each product type would be some job...

I personally find some people rely too much on the warranty to mean they will have that device working at the end of year X...
